Last Wednesday night at the regular session of the Palm Springs City Council, The Paul Kaplan Group’s John Murasky was given a certificate of appreciation by Mayor Steve Pougnet for his artwork contribution to promote Village Fest. John’s artwork appears on the latest poster promoting the weekly Thursday night event on Palm Canyon Drive.
Murasky studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he received a degree in illustration. From there he went on to a career creating and animating motion graphics for television working at ABC, FOX, and CBS. Murasky created promotional graphics for various television shows including The X-Files, The Simpsons, Twin Peaks, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Survivor.
John has always loved to draw. Growing up, he loved Hanna Barbera cartoons, Harvey comics, and Disney animated films and those continue to influence him. Murasky said that another influence was the advertising of his childhood. Murasky’s artwork is available at select Palm Springs stores.
As the Murasky poster illustrates, every Thursday evening, Downtown Palm Springs transforms into the Palm Springs VillageFest. At the VillageFest, visitors experience a diverse array of artists, artisans, entertainers, and purveyors of fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, jewelry, snacks and sweets in addition to all the great shops, restaurants, clubs, and entertainment venues located along World Famous Palm Canyon Drive.
